CHOOSE YOUR CHOICE OF SONGS CORRECTLY

image

Your choice of songs can actually define you, music has lots of effect in our lives, we tend to listen to songs for different reasons and purposes either to dance, heal ourselves, meditate, reminisce or even relate to past experiences, as the case maybe we all have reasons why we choose to listen to the kind of songs we play on a regular basis. No form of art connects easily to the mind than music does, music connects directly to the soul.

Most people today choose to listen to songs that pass or convey little or less inspiration to them, just dancing to the rhythm and sound of a song isn’t a cool form of expressing it, although it ain’t bad but music can be expressed or used in different forms that is benefiting to your mind and soul.

The question is ”how do you want your life to be ?? “

One of the answers to that question is your choice of music. A research shows that music has a major influence and profound effect in our life.

Each genre of music has its own customs attached to it, for me rap songs are known for their poetic verses although it doesn’t seem to uphold what it stands for in recent times, there are still great rap songs out there that pass on lots of powerful messages. Have you heard of the pessimistic by wale and jcole ? Where they poetically talk about hope ? Most good songs comes with powerful messages we can relate to and there are tendencies it affects our lives in positive ways, but when we just flow with the rhythm and sound of songs without relating to the messages the song carries, we fail to inspire ourselves.

I was heartbroken at the time marvins room by drake was released, and I related to it quickly the first time I played it, the song was about him (drake) feeling down from a heartbreak he just experienced, so i connected with the theme of the song, and I was able to go through my heartbreak at that time easily. 
What am trying to paraphrase from this experience and article in general is that we should listen to songs for specific reasons, reasons that can affect us in positive ways, just dancing or listening to songs without no form of inspiration depicts low level of character.

Choosing the right songs to listen to is relevant for the development of your mind and soul, get drawn to songs that have good and positive messages in them, art can be expressed in different forms and its our duty to relate to them, not just relating but trying to get the message the performer is passing on.

When a songs doesn’t pass on a good and positive message, stay away from it because it tends to reflect you in a manner that isn’t acceptable or admired by people, it passes on negative energy and it doesn’t help in the development of your mind and soul.

You can be a good source of inspiration to people by listening to the right songs. Do you want to be nuisance just because of your poor choice of songs ? Or a person who is admired by all and inspires people in a good and positive manner.

ENRICHING YOUR LIFE FOR THE BEST

Take time to explore the world alone and see things from a different perspective. A time alone with yourself wouldn’t hurt a bit, your daily live revolves around a particular circle maybe work, hanging out with friends, travelling on business trips etc. as the case may be.

It’s important you take out time, once in a while to see the world and your own world from a different perspective by reflecting and meditating. When you get too accustomed to a certain kind of life it takes you away from your true self at times.

Bonding with nature is highly important, it gives you this fresh feeling of life.

This life is extremely spiritual and so is the human mind, body and soul and it takes a spiritual being to live in a spiritual world. When you spiritually is tested you undergo lot of issues pertaining your life.
One of the way you can improve your spiritual life is spending time alone in quiet places that depicts nature by meditating and reflecting as moments like this allows you think reasonably about things and situations in life.

A person who doesn’t take time to think and reason well enough by meditating and reflecting falls short of wisdom in his/her life, do you want to be the unwise one ? Or the one enriched with wisdom ?
When you are overloaded with issues or things either its relevant or irrelevant it takes you further away from your true self making you unbalanced in your mental, physical, spiritual and emotional life. A machine that is overworked needs time to rest to avoid breakdown, so is our human body mind and soul. Taking time out alone to meditate reflect and reason with yourself saves you from breakdown of different from either physically emotionally or spiritually.

Take time to bond with nature by meditating reflecting and reasoning for the purpose of a healthy mental, physical, spiritual and emotional life.

IN A PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS : BEING HAPPY 101

image

Being happy is how we all love to feel right ? But the reality here is that people fall short of this feeling. People tend to derive their source of happiness from different things as it can vary with different individual personality, you might get your source of happiness from the things you do on a daily basis, it might be from someone close or dear to you or just being at the stage you are in your life can make your happy.

What if its the other way round ? what if what you do on a daily basis doesn’t keep you happy ? Or what if you don’t have someone close or dear to you, what if the stage you are in your life right now sucks ?? How do you guarantee your happiness ? People who have shortcomings when it comes to being happy have as there are different reasons to why they aren’t happy.

But there are actual measures you can take to guarantee your happiness or you being happy. There’s one basic thing to know about happiness, nothing in this world can guarantee you 100% happiness except you.

Your thoughts can ruin your happiness, when you think too much about a bad situation you’re going through, it might just weaken you so much that happiness or joy can be far fetched. No matter how bad/wounded you feel, always know you can feel better and the only thing that can make you feel better is when you try at feeling better. Think less about your situation and think of more of the right path to follow and things to do that can help in making you heal or feel better, remember healing doesn’t come at once, it takes stages and time.

How can you guarantee your happiness ?

Find out what you love the most, there must be something out there you know deep within your mind, you love and crave to do, something you have passion for, follow it and keep getting the best out of it. Cease the moment and never let go.

Go out there, search and explore for reasonable people who share the same passion and vision with you, people who specifically bring out the best in you, share and cherish every moment with them. live, love, laugh, grow with them.

Above all share and spread this feeling of happiness with the people that are of high value in your life and all others.

With this you will never fall short of happiness.

SAMSUNG OR APPLE WHO’S THE FUTURE ?

The rivalry between these two smartphone companies has been on for a while now, over the years the have produced powerful smartphones, as they both have their fair share in terms of market share and brand presence. But the question is for how long will they keep this pace in terms of releasing great phones.

We often see companies that fall while some grow bigger and take the world by storm, Samsung and apple are not showing signs of slowing down but which can you regard as the future ? By future I mean who will have a bigger brand presence and market share in the smartphone industry.

It’s kinda hard to predict from this present stage, but Samsung has been the brand that comes up with newer technological innovations, for instance the smart pause and play then the air browse. IPhone tend to be a bit conservative in terms of design and specifications, following the release of new smart phones over the years.

With the release of the s6 series, Samsung showed us a great sign of technological advancement although the iPhone 6 was great but there was little or no difference compared to the previous versions of iPhone.

You can say a brand is the future if it shows signs of improvement, and Samsung from my own perspective is that brand. There are always looking for ways to come up with one new innovative idea, that will capture the heart of customers.

iPhone has to take certain measures to keep up that pace, because the way I see it, Samsung is just looking for that perfect opportunity to take the smartphone world by storm.
